Courage is Born From Fear by April 21st is a bold part of a large metalcore mural, showing us the landscape of our lives. The band does not just write songs, they craft concepts too. One might notice a metamorphosis as the music evolves track to track, often themed similarly with emblematic depictions of depression or the power of lies, but it is the structure of the vocal itself that brings the listener to profound satisfaction. The tracks on this EP are innovative and they clearly place the band on the map at the center of the metalcore genre.
